Has it been a while since you have had your vision tested? Even if you do not wear glasses or contact lenses it is important that you have your vision tested on a regular basis to make sure that you are not developing any eye diseases or disorders. It is generally recommended that vision exams be performed about every one to two years for healthy adults younger than 60. However, if you have an eye problem, or a medical condition that can affect your eye health, it is important that these eye exams are done on a much more frequent basis. If you are looking for a great optometrist who provides top-notch vision testing in Kingwood, and eye care, you will want to come to our eye care practice, Today’s Vision.
At Today’s Vision, our highly-trained and well-respected optometrist is Dr. Jay Pravda. Dr. Pravda has been in practice for almost 30 years as a therapeutic optometrist. At our practice we provide excellent vision testing in Kingwood, and welcome all members of the family into our practice. During our comprehensive vision exams we use the latest technologies and screening procedures. We use the Optos Optomap that is able to scan the inside of your eye without the need for annoying dilating drops. With Optomap we are able to clearly see the retina, the optic nerve and the macula. We are also able to keep these images on file so that we will be able to compare our patient’s changes eye as time goes by. This can be especially helpful in monitoring for certain eye problems such as diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration.
During vision testing in Kingwood our optometrist will check to see if you have any refractive problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism. If so a prescription can be written for eyeglasses that will easily correct this problem. You will also have your eyes screened for a variety of diseases and disorders including: glaucoma; cataracts; diabetic retinopathy; and other problems of the retina, macula and cornea. Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness in the US. It has no obvious symptoms in the beginning. However, it can be causing irreversible vision problems even in this early state. For this reason it is important to keep up with eye exams. If found early, glaucoma can be treated and vision problems can generally be avoided. For an eye exam with Dr. Pravda, contact us today.
